Our associate Chantal WEBER-BECKER has found in the civil registers of Bettembourg fourlings in Fennange born on March 17th, 1873.
Between 9am and 10:15am, 4 children were born in Fennange, the last two of them were stillborn. The parents of the 4 children were the 46-year-old Heinrich WESTER and the 37-year-old Maria MANGEN, farmers in Fennange.
The births (Johann Peter and Nicolaus) as well as the 2 deaths were declared to the municipality in the afternoon by the grandfather of the children, Nikolaus WESTER, 76, farmer.
Unfortunately, the other two children died on March 19th and 20th 1873.

The online teamwork in the field of genealogy in Luxembourg was developed by the luxroots group from 2003. Almost 1.8 million births / baptisms, marriages and deaths (600 / day) were analyzed and their details were entered by more than 60 volunteers in the non-profit association database.

Let us build together the genealogy tree of Luxembourg! luxroots is the genealogical association in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg whose volunteers do not work on personal databases, but enter data online directly to the non-profit luxroots-database.
That's why working together makes us so powerful. If you are able to analyze records of civil registers or even of parish registers, and you want to be part of a dynamic team of volunteers as part of the cross-border and non-profit project, please contact us!
You do not need to go to townships or to archives. luxroots makes available to its associates the pictures of the records of a certain township/parish free of charge which they plan to analyze and enter the details in the luxroots-database.
Do not hesitate to participate in this great puzzle of genealogy of Luxembourg by analyzing and capturing the details of the records of your preferred township or parish. Check our inventory of records of townships/parishes
to be analyzed soon or other available documents.

During a meeting at the Ministry of Culture on April 20th, 2018, between Mrs Josée KIRPS, director of the National Archives, Guy ARENDT, Secretary of State for Culture, and Georges EICHER of asbl, Mrs KIRPS confirmed the posting of the Civil Register records on the website of the National Archives according to the following schedule:
- for mid July 2018, the records of the district of Luxembourg and
- for December 2018, the records of the district of Diekirch
The diocesan archives of Luxembourg plan to put online this year the parish registers on

Which associate is currently working on what ?

880 notary records of DONLINGER, Ettelbruck 1791/1795 have been indexed by our associate Marianne EHMANN. This database now holds 15,209 records.

Our website, where you can publish your GEDCOM file for free, now holds 95 trees with 274,000 people after adding and updating the files of Shirley ROLLER-LEE and Gérald PIQUET. Give us yours and we will publish it for free on this site.
NEW: If your Gedcom file (containing 2,000 people or more) has not or will not be published on another website in Luxembourg, we will credit your account with
1,000 myluxroots points.

For your searches, you do not need to have a special genealogy program, neither free nor paid. Through the myluxroots transactions, more than 400 subscribers and associates have already entered their recent family members to luxroots linking them to the ancestors already entered earlier by our volunteers. If you add 7 family members (1924-2017) in our database, it is possible to get a pedigree chart with 1,000 ancestors (10 generations), and this in 10 minutes, not to mention the ability to create lists of descendants of these ancestors instantly. In Luxembourg, you will find nothing comparable to our project and for this reason, please help us to assemble the large Grand Duchy of Luxembourg genealogy puzzle and the neighboring regions. Check the pedigree charts of Christiane, Hortense, Paulette and Serge. Do the same, we will support you!
